Kevin McDonald seemed as though his Wolves days were numbered?

In fact an exit from Molineux over the summer was looking highly likely given the fact Kenny Jackett had marginalized the involvement of the Scottish midfielder, who wasn’t involved in any of the final 10-matches of the season.

Jackett wouldn’t commit, one way or the other, as to what his future would be either!

Until now…. With the Wolves boss saying he is looking for McDonald to return for pre-season training ahead of the 2016/17 season, something he’s ‘confident’ will be the case telling the Express And Star.

‘We want him to come back in pre-season, work very hard and work his way back into the team. He`s a contracted Wolves player, I don`t think there`s any surprises coming with him. He has to be as fit as he possibly can during the course of the summer and earn his place back. I`m confident he wants to stay too.’

The reason why McDonald, who didn’t offer his best form this season (he wasn’t alone in fairness), wasn’t involved still isn’t known and hasn’t been revealed but rumour has it they had a ‘fall out.’

Jackett went onto add he feels McDonald could return to be part of his two man central midfield used next season though with him ‘re-integrated’ back into the side next season.

‘I think he can be re-integrated back in. He can have a good summer, come back with some determination and try to be part of a midfield pair that`s going to work very hard to get us an offensive number 10 (into the side).’

He finished by reaffirming his thoughts he was confident McDonald would return after the summer a Wolves player and following a ‘very good pre-season’ he would then be able to ‘earn that place’ in the side.
